You will feel like a new person after this weekend!
This is a perfect opportunity to de-stress, unwind and to restore balance on every level. Through the practice of yoga in the beautiful and peaceful surroundings of The Courtyard and the intake of delicious, nourishing and healthy vegetarian food prepared and cooked by Olivia and her team, you will return to a greater sense of calm and stillness which is our natural state. You will leave after the weekend feeling rested yet energised, open and light with a greater connection to yourself and the world around you.
Liz has a unique way of using her skills to challenge those who are more experienced while nurturing those who are just beginning – all in the same environment. As the body becomes more open and free through the tools of the practice, so too does the mind as it enters a more peaceful state.
